Hey there....I hope you're having a great weekend!

We spent all day yesterday at the shops....buying a suit for DS's Formal....and he loves it....and he looks great! Lots of piccies in a couple of weeks I'm sure:-)

So far today there's been dog washing, wood chopping, laundry, school work and now finally a chance to add a blog post and get my June Card Kit finished for Shop and Crop.

Sasha has just sold S&C (she was such a great "boss") and Kylie and Darryl Powell have bought it so I look forward to working with them into the future:-) There's a gorgeous kit of goodies coming up for June so make sure you check it out at S&C....in a few days.

Apart from that, I played last night with 2 challenges.....Iwona's CASE Study and Karola's Scrap Cake Challenge....I combined the two - here they are....

Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

PTI Blog Hop and Card Patterns 116 narrow

PTI Blog Hop

Good Morning.....I'm up bright and early to hopefully link up with the May Papertrey Blog Hop...unfortunately I usually seem to miss it due to the time differences so fingers crossed this month :-)

PTI
For the blog hop this month we want to see your favorite take on flowers. You can stamp backgrounds, create custom floral embellishments, showcase unique flower center additions (buttons, rhinestones, beads, etc...), flowers die-cut from different materials (like fabric, felt, vellum, etc...) or anything else you can dream up! We are looking forward to seeing all of your amazing creations!

 

So flowers it is:-)

I played with my PTI Beautiful Blooms II and Mat Stack 5 Dies; PTI Raspberry Fizz Felt and a sentiment from Inside and Out Birthday....

PTI Blog Hop and Card Patterns 116 close up
Papers are MME Stella and Rose - from their Gertie pad.
